Looks to be the same! I just need to know the fax number for the queen lewiston border, so I am planning on calling them shortly.

Thanks for the detailed reply.

What if US car is already in Canada

What if US car already in Ontario, do I still have to take it to US border? It's my friend car 02 BMW 330ci convertible with nav. He was travelling to Ontario, his wife was pregnant, so he took the flight back. I do have the original US title and one more document he signed which I can't recall. Now my other friend was telling me, I have to drive the car to US border, park in storage for 3 days for inspection/clearance, pay the duty n do other process. Please let me know if I still have to take the car to US or no? Thanks

Buying a car from eBay/United States

Yes you do, as Canada Customs has to issue paperwork to begin the registration process.

I believe you'll have to just drive to the U.S. and make a U-turn after crossing into the country. But you will also have to have your friend fill out a US export form in advance (new policy as of 2014 I think). Upon arriving at the CDN border, you'll present the Title and Bill Of Sale to the Canadian guard. They'll send you in for taxes/duties/RIV paperwork.

BMWM5Lover just imported a US car. Perhaps he can shed more light on the recent changes to importing.

or you could get a broker to do it. Also it is much more difficult now as noted. As of Oct 2/2014 you need extra paper work see https://www.riv.ca/ImportantNotices.aspx

So Im getting ready to import another car and yes there is a new regulation as per the US Export office.

You have to get a special export number called an ITN number from AES or some bullshit like that. I got the number through a broker for $75 bucks but its just another hassle.

Apparently the number is necessary to give the government time to research the car to be exported to ensure its not stolen etc. This new regulation started as of Oct 2nd 2014.

That is interesting, I imported a 97 M3 last summer (July 2015) and I did not have an ITN.

My wife and I drove down to get the car and I drove it home on Connecticut plates. On the way there the US border guard counted my cash, looked at a copy of my RIV exemption paperwork and let me go. On the way home I declared the car at the Canadian border, had the car inspected, completed the RIV paperwork, paid duty and drove home. Aside from 13 hours of driving it was an easy process.

Once you work out the US exchange rate and freight/customs, how much could you possibly be saving?

Old post I know, but no one clarified this. Your 97 M3 was 15+ years old when you imported it, so it is exempt from alot of the additional paperwork that is required for newer cars.
